All eight balance, all eight sioing. A left allemande and a right hand grand. Meet your partner and promenade eight 'Til you come straight.
(Explanation: Partners face each other, and each steps back four steps, then forward four steps and then they swing. From the swing it finishes exactly as No. 6.)
Swing your partners don't be late. Noiv swing on the corner like swingin' on
the gate. Noiv your own and promenade eight.
(Explanation: Each gentleman swings his partner twice around, then he turns to the lady on his left, "his corner/' and swings her twice around. Then he swings his partner again and promenades with her around the set and back to his own place.)
Everybody swing his prettiest gal And promenade, boys, promenade.
(Explanation: Each gentleman takes his partner in regular dance position and swings her twice around. He then promenades with her around the set in a counterclockwise direction and back to place.)
Used as a grand chorus after each couple has gone all around with
swing, swing, everybody swing!
(Explanation: Usually used to precede most of the following endings, but occasionally used alone, without even a promenade.)
Note*—Quite often endings and introductions are used interchangeably. One may be substituted for the other.
